If you haven’t been lucky enough to visit Monsieur Spoon when on holidays in Bali then maybe you should try your hand at this signature tart. I am drooling already!
Monsieur Spoon’s Salty Caramel Tart Recipe:
Sweet Crust Pastry Recipe
- 200 gram fine Almond Flour
- 880 gram Icing Sugar
- 880 gram all purpose Butter
- 20 gram Sea Salt (from Amed)
- 7 whole Eggs
- 2 kg multi-purpose Flour
Mix the fine almond flour, salt, icing sugar and flour together and spread on the table.
Make a hole in the middle and crack the eggs into the whole.
On top of the flour mix, place small pieces of butter and rub them together with your fingers. You want to soften the butter but not melt it!
Put two fingers inside the eggs and start stirring, slowly, adding the flour mix to the eggs until you get a nice pastry.
Rest in chiller for 1 hour before using.
Inside a pastry ring, shape a tartlet.
Pierce the dough with a fork to make holes, then leave in chiller at least 2 hours.
Bake for 14 mins at 170C until golden brown.tweet
Salty Caramel Recipe:
150g Caster Sugar
150g liquid Cream
33g Salted Butter
Pour the sugar into a pan and heat slowly until you have a dark amber color.
Meanwhile, in a separate pan, bring the cream to the boil and then set aside.
Once the sugar is completely melted, take the pan off the heat and add the butter, stirring with a spatula.
Pour in the cream, stirring constantly, and cook for 4 mins.
Then, turn the head down low and continue heating until the cream reaches 108°C.
Poor the salty caramel into the tartlets.
Chill until set. Enjoy!
